WELD 091AF  Industrial Welding Fundamentals 5 Units

54 hours lecture and 108 hours lab per term. This course is designed to introduce the student to a variety of welding processes. Topics will include historical development of welding, the welding industry and its future, applied terms and definitions, methods of application, safety in the welding environment, welding positions, and joint types. Students will develop occupational proficiency using Oxyfuel Welding (OFW), Brazing (TB), Oxyfuel Cutting (OFC), Air Carbon Arc Cutting (CAC-A), and Plasma Cutting (PAC). (Degree Credit)

WELD 091BF  Semi-Automatic Welding Applications 5 Units

Corequisite(s): WELD 091AF or WELD 100 F with a grade of C or better.

54 hours lecture and 108 hours lab per term. This course will cover, with in-depth study, the make-up of constant voltage power sources and semi-automatic wire feed systems. Various methods of metal transfer will be covered, such as spray, globular, short-circuiting, and pulsed spray. Applications will be applied to ferrous and non-ferrous metals of various thicknesses in all axes. Students will become occupationally proficient using Gas Metal Arc Welding (GMAW) on limited thickness material in all axis on plate, Flux Cored Arc Welding (FCAW) on intermediate and unlimited thicknesses in all axis on plate. (Degree Credit)

WELD 091CF  Manual Arc Welding Fundamentals 5 Units

Corequisite(s): WELD 091BF with a grade of C or better.

54 hours lecture and 108 hours lab per term. This course covers the make-up and use of constant current power supplies as found in Shielded Metal Arc Welding (SMAW) and Gas Tungsten Arc Welding (GTAW) with alternating current, direct current and pulsed current output variations. Elements of welding design, cost estimations, process selection and related welding symbols also will be covered. Students will gain entry level skills on Shielded Metal Arc Welding (SMAW) and Gas Tungsten Arc Welding (GTAW) using ferrous and non-ferrous metals. (Degree Credit)
